Writers: Charles Kenyon; Mary C. McCall, Jr.

From a play: A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare

Keywords: Comedy

An assortment of young lovers fall asleep in an enchanted forest, while a group of other Athenians rehearse a play for an upcoming wedding. Yes, Jimmy Cagney does Shakespeare (though much of the time with a donkey head). Olivia de Havilland's first film; exceptional performance by Mickey Rooney at age 14. An absolutely magical production of his play, never equaled. Won Oscars for Best Cinematography and Best Editing; received additional nominations for Best Picture and Best Assistant Director.
